We had meetings with

meetings with the 
President, meetings with 
the Chaplain. So much 
was going on that 1 did- 
n't even realize that I had 
bid a tearless (for me) 
farewell to my family 
until an hour later. They 
were gone. 

I had expected to meet 
more girls sooner, but I 
suspect part of the reason 
1 hadn't is because of my 
personality. In some situ- 
ations I am quiet and shy 
and in others it's easier 
for me to open up and be 
myself I had promised 
myself I'd be a "new 
woman" and greet every 
single person I met with 
an incredibly enthusiastic 
"Hello, how are you. 
Nice to meet you.. Yes, 
it's very interesting that I 
am from Vermont and 
happened to choose Saint 
Mary's as my college. . ." 
I've never believed in the 
expression, "easier said 
than done," so much. 

I didn't realize I'd have 
so much free time in my 
schedule. I only have 

one class on Tuesdays and 
Thursdays. This was a 
nice surprise. And I had 
no idea that my room- 
mate and 1 would get 
along so well so quickly 
1 was worried about that 
for a while. It was hard 
at first since she's attend- 
ed Saint Mary's for two 
years already and knows 
virtually everyone. Since 
1 knew no one it worried 
me to see her go visit her 
friends so much. 1 com- 
pletely understood that 
she wanted to see them, 
but for some time it 
seemed the whole year 
would be like that. Right 
now, however, it seems 
like we've known each 
other for years. 

I wish I had known 
how much money I'd 
need. I hear it every year. 
A friend will go away to

she has no money. I

Stagecoach 1 

Our individual handwritings are as distinctive as our 
very own memories. Writing charts for us the years 
we spend in elementary school, middle school, high 
school. Friends and family recognize our familiar 
scrawls with a smile and know immediately who wrote them. These 
same people form the core of our earliest and fondest memories. Yet, 
from diverse backgrounds we come together at a place on the continu- 
um where we are propelled forward by the mysteries of the past 
toward the wonders of the future. This book combines written words 
from women who preceded us, with our memories of the most recent 
past and melds them into a collective experience we can call up with a 

A map is a tool which helps us move from one point to another. We 
will start at the beginning, when, a little shy, a lot apprehensive, but 
enthusiastic nonetheless, we arrived for orientation. Stretched out in 
front of us were endless opportunities to learn from all the countless 
people we were going to come in contact with-roommates, hall mates, 

local friends, faculty, staff and an array of incredible experiences. The I 
map twisted and turned and sometimes veered off into directions we 
were not prepared for. But surprisingly, there was always someone to 
gently pull us back onto the right track. Always! If it ever briefly 
appeared that we might be lost, suddenly, out of the mist there was a 
guide. Always! 

On a clear, sparkling day in May graduates dress in white and walk 
around the circle and straight through the grove, among the people we 
have met along the way and among the ones we have always known. 
The laughter and tears that characterize this day somehow symbolize 
every minute that we spent in the chapel, in Smedes, in Pittman, in the 
library, on the soccer field, in the dining hall, on the tennis courts, in 
the dormitories and with each other. The end of this road, this page, 
graduation, is simply the start of a new journey, a new tale. 

This book maps the various stories we wrote together. Even though 
our memories are colored by our individual personalities, we have 
shared the moments and the seasons, the perceptions and the growth. 

For now. . .that's all she wrote!

Introduction 3 

The Man Behind the Voice 


' I his is Sarah Clark. Dean Hume 
would like to see you in his office 
at 3:00 p.m. today!" 

Your stomach sinks. You know you're going 
to be pierced by those steely blue eyes from 
the far side of the Dean's desk. When he looks 
at you it is clear that he knows exactly what 
you are thinking and that any excuse you 
come up with is not going to be good 
enough. You also know that he will be fair 
and no matter how high the cards seem to be 
stacked against you Dean Hume will have ALL 


the facts, good and bad. Chances are, before 
the interview is over the blue eyes have soft- 
ened into a twinkle that is accompanied by a 
broad smile and a chuckle. You leave, deter- 
mined not to do anything that might possibly 
disappoint the Dean. 

Later when you meet him at the soc- 
cer match or basketball game, he grins and 
pats you on the shoulder as if it is the first 
time he has seen you all day. Anything that 
happened in his office earlier is behind you 
both and you have the opportunity to start all 

over again with a clean slate. 

It is because of scenarios like this 
one, and a myriad of others, that the 1996 
Stagecoach staff lovingly dedicates our book to a 
very special man who has a positive daily 
impact on all of our lives. He moves quietly 
among us, but his presence is always felt. His 
wisdom, compassion, and understanding seem 
boundless. During our stay here we are all 
touched by them in one way or another. This 
one is for you Dean Hume!

orientation felt like a giant tidal wave 

Owas crashing down. We swirled from 
one location to another trying to absorb 
all the information that was coming our 
way. In fact, when the ninth and tenth 
graders made their orientation trip to 
Morehead City and Adantic Beach, there were three 
hurricanes skirting the coast of North Carolina. High 
tides and torrential downpours did not begin to damp- 
en the spirits of the youngest of the Belles. 

There was a back campus bar-b-que with a band. 
(Louise Harris really does have a good voice). There 
were hall sessions, handbook sessions, academic ses- 
sions, testing sessions, and get-to-know you jam ses- 
sions where we shared our bewilderment with each 
other and began to acknowledge with a sense of won- 
der that maybe we did have a place here after all.

chapel at 1 1:00, a picnic 
at 12:00, and a scav- 
enger hunt that scattered 

girls all over the campus 
at 2:00. Two chartered 
buses, both college vans 
and a caravan of cars 
headed down Instate 40 
into the brand new 
Durham Athletic Park 

right in the middle 
of downtown. 
Traffic in and 
around the park 
came to a standstill 
as hundreds of girls 
poured from the 
buses, vans, and 
cars. We staked our 
claim on a grassy 
hillside, cheering 
loudly when the 
other fans across the 
park cheered Our 
knowledge of the 
rudiments of the 
game was limited at 
best, but we man- 
aged to eat and 
drink and laugh a 
lot. We also got to 
know each other.

Orientation 7 


ave Dillon's first year college soccer 
team was an eclectic group, to say 
the least. Some had a great deal of 
experience, some had very little. 
What they did share was a love of the 
game and a desire to play. And play they did. . .all over 
North and South Carolina it seemed. Their travels in 
the fall took them from tiny Louisburg to bustling 
Spartanburg to Brevard. Even more important than soc- 
cer, it sometimes seemed, was who sat where in which 
van. 1 1 was important that each player had enough 
room to sprawl with her pillow (and frequently a blan- 
ket or bedspread). Sleep on the long trips was a top 
priority. Even before sleep though there was something 
else. FOOD 1 Honestly. FOOD! This team was food 
obsessed. There were a few vegetarians, a few who 
only ate meat and potatoes, a few who would eat any- 
thing, and a few who just had really weird taste. On 
the field Coach Dillon knew the game and how it 
should be played. Off the field his greatest challenge 
was how and where to feed his ravenous team Fast 
food places were not an option because several team

We might not be as large as some 
schools, but we sure do love to run 
and kick a soccer ball. Due to an 
increased interest on all levels of expertise, a 
rec team played in the CASLE program. Ably 
coached by Kurt Gilliland otherwise, known as 
Mr. G, the team won a few, lost a few and 
enjoyed after the game meals at the players' 
homes and in fine area restaurants. A few of 
the more experienced players used the fall 
league as a way to stay in shape and gain field 
time before the spring season. Coach Gilliland

Orientation can be a bit overwhelm- 
ing with its swirl of unfamiliar 
faces, places to be that we don't 
know how to find, meetings and 
rules and rules and meetings. New students in the high 
school and college alike were granted a respite from the 
usual orientation hoopla when they boarded two char- 
tered buses for a day at King's Dominion Amusement 
Park in Virginia.

gling all the way, to five year olds, eager to ride every 
single ride at least once. What is it about fresh air and 
sunshine that makes everything funnier than normal 
and allows people to be seen in a different light' It is 
easier to be giddy and frolic when you are in a place 
where nobody seems to care how silly you are. Like 
the colt in the quote below, the girls pranced, skipped, 
rode and laughed, almost like a last fling before the 
serious business of school began

King's Dominion 1 1 

The day was October 2nd, the time, 10:12 a.m. 
Pittman Auditorium seats were Pilled by stu- 
dents, parents, and friends. All that could be 
heard were the encouraging shouts of enthusiastic Saint 
Mary's girls, and perhaps the rapid pounding often 
nervous hearts. Up on stage, behind the only obstacle 
preventing a glimpse of the newly-colored outfits were 
the Cold Cuts of 1995-96. As the red velvet curtains 
separated at center stage, students leapt to their feet, 
clapping and screaming as they welcomed this year's 
Cold Cuts, clad in the new colors of cantelope and elec- 
tric-royal blue. After feasting their eyes on the splendif- 
erous Cold Cuts, the audience listened eagerly to old 
and new songs, a full 45 minutes of pure Cold Cut 

Following a long and prosperous tradition 
of over 35 years, the Cold Cuts is a washtub band 
Although it started so long ago, today's Cold Cuts fol- 
low the basic traditions of those of 1961. Very neces- 
sary parts of their wardrobe are the straw hats, t-shirts, 
and overalls, imitating the basic look of the original 

Cold Cuts-straw hats, madras shirts, and Bermudas or 
overalls For the past several years, 9 girls have been 
chosen at tryouts at the end of their freshman year. 
They perform together for the first semester of their 
sophomore year, then hold another sophomore tryout 
session at the beginning of the second semester. They 
add the number of girls chosen to the Original 9, and 
perform together throughout the last semester. This 
year's Original 9 are Kelly Livingston (hot dog), Ann 
Dial McMillan (washboard), Deborah Aycock (morra- 
cas), Sarah Vanmeter (pres., crazy stick), Becca George 
(sec./tres., washtub), Phebe Hubbard (bongos), 
Jennifer Rasmovich (tamborine), Jamie Griswold 
(sticks), and Danna Daniely (piano). Their advisor is 
Mary Virginia Swain, making this her 6th year of 
working with the Cold Cuts. 

Never let it be said that the Cold Cuts don't 
work hard Performing on campus and off, they prac- 
tice for up to 2 hours a night, Sunday through Thursday. 
They make appearances at campus events, as well as 
company conventions, nursing homes and hospitals.

Charlotte, painting their instruments 

Showing of the Colors is perhaps one of, if 
not the biggest show of the year The colors are new 
each year, and kept secret from the entire campus until 
the big day. There is even a contest held beforehand to 
see if anyone can guess what they are. This year's group 
opened with 1 1 songs, showing how tight these 10 are. 
It ended with the inevitable "cuts," when each Cold Cut 
teased an audience member as part of their signature 
song at the end of the show. Future Saint Mary's girls 
beware-the Cold Cuts are watching you!

At the end of the first three days of 
classes the ninth and tenth graders left 
town. It wasn't that they were run 
off, they were going to the beach. 
Yes, it was the height of hurricane 
season, and yes, there were several potentially danger- 
ous storms out to sea, but this group was undaunted by 
a little wind and a litde rain. 

Of course, Mr. Gilliland was separated from the other 
vans before we ever got out of Raleigh and of course, 
the trip took over an hour longer than it should have 
because of all the stops that we made. The motel, 
despite repeated calls to be sure all was well, did not 
have all the rooms in a block. Mr. Mathieu, Mr. Ham 
and Mrs. Hill all were assertive. It was late, the students 
were hungry, it all got worked out. Except when the 
girls went to get supper at the fast food stop right in 
front of the motel, there were some visiting Marines 
who saw thirty-six girls, a white van with blue lettering 
that read "Saint Mary's College-Raleigh, North 
Carolina" and put two and two together. Mr. Mathieu, 

Mr. Ham and Mrs. Hill were assertive again. 

After eating a continental breakfast by the pool, while 
battling winds so strong it was hard to hold onto a sty- 
rofoam coffee cup, the intrepid crew made its way to 
the ocean. It rained. We went back to the motel, 
changed into dry clothes and visited Historic Beaufort. 
It rained some more. We went back to the motel, 
changed into dry clothes and boarded the Crystal 
Queen for a moonlight dinner cruise. It rained yet 
some more. 

It rained Sunday while we had a study skills work- 
shop. 1 1 rained while we took a mini-tour of Bogue 
Banks and Emerald Isle. It rained all the way back to 
Raleigh. But, here's the thing-nobody cared. We 
laughed and sang and talked and did exactly what the 
weekend was supposed to allow us to do. We got to 
know each other.

Don't you km lh« wind in

Even though it was a windy 
trip to the beach, Ellie

breather. Finally, Mr. 
Gilliland, Mr. Mathieu, Mr.

relax and enjoy themselves.

The high school tennis team recorded another 
winning season, posting an 8 win, 3 loss 
record, finishing tied for second in the 
Piedmont Athletic Conference of Independent Schools. 

The team also tied for fifth in state competition featur- 
ing 1 6 teams from independent schools in North and 
South Carolina. Leading the way was nationally ranked 
and PACK Player of the Year Jeni Burnette. Jeni was 
undefeated in PACIS play and runner-up in the number 
one singles position at the state tournament. Jeni fin- 
ished her career at Saint Mary's undefeated in regular 
season play. She will attend UNC-CH on a tennis schol- 
arship. She teamed with fellow senior LuAnne Box to 
win the number one doubles championship at the state 
tournament. Both were named to the News and Observer's 
All Star Team. Graduating with Burnette and Box were 
number four singles player Nanq' Cobb, number five 
singles player Tracy Harris and number three doubles 
team member Courtney McCormick. While at Saint 
Mary's High School these seniors had a combined dual 
team match record of 1 9 wins and 3 losses. Members 
of the 1995 squad returning will be Meredith Wiggs, 
Annie Mason, Donnell Turner, Alice Manning and

There are several things one can always 
count on in Raleigh in October. The 
leaves begin to turn and SMC students 
commit to The Walk for Hope. Getting 
folks up early on a Sunday morning is 
never easy, but the students, bleary eyed and stumbling, 
assembled outside Holt Student Activities Center to get 
ready for an eight o'clock departure. Both vans and a 
caravan of cars made their way to the Angus Barn. For 

those who wanted to worship, an informal church ser- 
vice was held on the banks of a lake. Others took the 
opportunity to limber up in preparation for the six plus 
mile walk down highway 70, through Umstead Park 
and back. For the faint of heart, there were vans to 
return them if they could not make the entire route. 

The Walk for Hope was organized by employees of 
the late Thad Eure, Jr. as a way of honoring his memory 
and his commitment to discovering ways to treat men- 
tal illnesses. In just a few years participation jumped 
from hundred of walkers to thousands. 

We have been proud to be a part of the success of the 
walk. Our contributions have made a significant differ- 

And just how, one might ask, did all these girls allow 
themselves to be persuaded to rise so early on a Sunday 
morning? Not to dimmish philanthropic urges, but the 
fact is that at the conclusion of the walk there was a 
feast provided by Fat Daddy's Restaurant. There were 
hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, and all the trim- 
mings. Of course the students crawled out of bed and 
walked six miles. Who wouldn't?

Lawren Townsend is reward- 
ed for her spectacular 
efforts with a hearty meal. 
Most walkers were famished 
alter the long walk, and all 
were greatly appreciative 
lor all the chow. Lawren's 
friends, sitting next to her, 
agree. Just kiddin, Lawren!

begin admitting students in 
their forties? No, this

seemed like miles!

Walk for Hope 21 

y the end of Octoberfest young ladies 
who had previously thought them- 
selves fearless were piling four and 
five to a room to seek safety in num- 
bers- It made no difference whether 
the ghost of Aider! Smedes was truth or fiction Just 

the fact that he might be was enough to make some of 
the most stalwart souls wary. 

Golden October gave us another reason to celebrate. 
Halls in the dorms were turned into cobweb shrouded 
caverns. Students were actually given knives and 
encouraged to carve on punkin heads. They also partic- 
ipated in a balloon shaving contest. 

We bobbed, we picnicked, we wrestled (SMC girls 
sweating? You bet!), we laughed and we told ghost sto- 
ries around the campfire. One of the eeriest points 
during the week came when a strange creature arrived 
on campus to tell fortunes. Professing to possess a sixth 
sense, this mysterious person startled all who fell under 
her spell. Who on earth (or not) could it have been? 

And did Aldert Smedes visit? There are those who 
live on third Smedes who would swear to it. How else 
to explain the rustlings, the thumpings, and the whis- 
pers? After all, it was almost Halloween. You decide. 

A Very Festive October 

Look, I got her! 

Alex Georgeady is proud ol 
her accomplishment, and 
Kristen Mitchell doesn't

A night of spooks 

On camphre night, students 
gathered around this beau- 
tiful blaze for an hour of 
s'mores, hot chocolate, and 
ghost stories. There seemed 
to be an unusually large 
number of sleep-overs that 
night. I wonder why...

ghost wanted this seat? 


Apparently having a great 
time, Holly Evans joins the

At least it looks like she's 
having fun. That could be 
an expression of frustration. 
Or maybe she's eating. Is

?4 Parents' Weekend 

October ended with a parent uprising. 
Well, not really Moms and Dads 
joined their daughters on campus 
Friday, October 27th to see what life 
here is truly like. Well, not really. 
Everybody was on their best behavior, especially the 
faculty who welcomed parents into their classrooms. 
An abbreviated class schedule allowed parents to sample 
a typical academic day with their daughters. 

A sumptuous buffet was served at lunch, during 
which the Cold Cuts performed, after which parents 
had an opportunity to meet with their daughters' 
teachers if they desired. Many students took advantage 
of the afternoon hours to show their parents some of 
Raleigh's hot spots-the mall, Cameron Village, any 
where that sold clothes or shoes. 

Dr. and Mrs. Jenkins entertained the visiting families 
at a Sundown Social on their back lawn. This was fol- 
lowed by an unwritten tradition. When parents are in 

town they must take the girls out to dinner. What typi- 
cally happens is that parents meet up with friends they 
have not seen in some time, or roommates' parents get 
together to visit for the first time. The family dinner 
expands and then expands again so that often twenty or 
more wait in line at the 42nd Street Oyster Bar and 
Grill or the Angus Barn. The parents have the best time 
of all! Which is as it should be, because without them, 
none of us would be here. 

Parents join their girls on campus 

Adult students? Huh? 

No, they're not students! 
Parents Weekend brought 
(oiks from many different 
locations to be with their 
daughters for the occasion. 
Many participated in class, 
much to some of the stu- 
dents' dismay!

Parents' Weekend 25 

It's calling Papa John's or Gumby's at 1 :00 in 
the morning to order pizza and breadsticks, 
going to visit your friend down the hall, just 
because you need a quick five-minute study 
Hard to get used to at first, life in a dormitory is 
a unique experience that requires a lot of tolerance, 
patience and good humor. But it is also an experience 
that will help you learn a lot about dealing with others, 
allow you to make lasting friends, and will prove to be 
one of the most valuable experiences any person could 
ever have 

Within the confines of Saint Mary's four active dor- 
mitories: Penick Hall, Cruikshank Dormitory, Smedes 
Hall, and West Rock, activity is predominantly rampant 
and there is always someone around to talk to. As the 
year goes on, each building progressively becomes a 
home to each of its residents. And although each girl's 
room is original and different from every other girl's 
(even if they have the same floor plan), there is still a 
sense a unity and community that comes from living in 
a dorm. In fact, so much so that sometimes, your 
dorm is worlds away from the others on campus. 

What dorm life is really about are the little things. It 
is the late night eating with friends. It is being able to 
walk down the hall and borrow clothes, books, and 
coffee pots, knowing that someone will have what you 

need. It is the gossiping, the games, and the jam ses- 
sions. It is knowing that if you are ever lonely, all you 
have to do is stick you head out the door and you'll 
find someone. Yet it's also the security of knowing that 
when you want your space, you can retreat to your 

Dorm life is the constant ringing of phones and try- 
ing to figure out if the last ring was your own phone. 
It is sharing bathrooms and trying to nap in the after- 
noon, when the girls above you sound like herds of 
elephants. It is waking up to other people's alarm 
clocks, and getting up the same time your roommate 
goes to bed. It is having a mattress that sags in the 
middle, and living off dining hall food. It is being able 
to smell the popcorn the girl downstairs just popped, 
being best friends with your R.A. and having personal 
jokes with your R.D. It's knowing the security guards 
better than your own family (well, almost). It's the hall 
meetings, the dorm socials, and the "Know the Code" 
process. It's getting to know people you never knew 
existed in a unique way. It is getting the chance to 
become life-long friends with the people you've lived 
in close contact with for four years. And what better 
way to make friends who will be friends forever' 
Dorm life is unlike any other in the world. 

This is the Life!

This mystery girl either doesn't 
want to be identified, or she 
believes that the only place to 
let loose is in her room! If the

comfortable enough in her

Always something to do 

This is just one example of 
the signs hanging through- 
out campus, especially in 
the dorms. Events, and 
therefore posters are con- 
stantly changing, advertising 
all the fun activities on and 
off campus.

For those of us who are 
lacking a motorized vehicle, 
biking proves to be a fun 
and healthy alternative.

Karen Edmundson couldn't

28 Fall Formal 

As my date and I entered Gilley's, the club 
where the Saint Mary's Fall Formal was being 
held, my gaze moved slowly around the room 
to admire the decorations, so creatively put up by the 
high school and college SGA. 1 handed my tickets to 
Elizabeth Warren while my date took our coats to be 
hung. On a quick trip to the bathroom, 1 saw a couple 
girls from my English class who looked as if they were 
hiding from someone. 1 quietly greeted them, and 
secretly wished I could join them Returning to my 
date's side we gradually made our way to the dance 
floor. I stopped briefly to say "Hello" to a few of the 
chaperones-Allison King.Tracey Jones, Louise Harris, 
and Mary Virginia Swain. Feeling somewhat tired with a 
mild headache, I didn't feel much like dancing But, 
having promised to meet and dance with my friends, 1 
reluctantly made my way toward the noise. My right 
foot touched the dance floor, and POW! Instant trans- 
formation! Whoa! The band was jamming, the bass 

was pumping, the people were boogying, and before 1 
knew it, so was I. My headache miraculously disap- 
peared, and my stomach forgot all about the meal I'd 
just eaten. I was a new woman! How did this happen' 
1 guess I had just realized that this was Where the Wild 
Things Are! 

Saturday, November 4th, found Saint Mary's girls 
styling their hair, checking on dinner reservations, and 
doing last minute shopping for hose. Things were nuts 
But 10:00 p.m. hit, and these same girls were beautiful- 
ly put together-hair, hose, and all. Dates or no dates, 
they came to dance, hang out with the boys, and see 
their fellow classmates transformed from gum-chewing, 
pajama-wearing students to princesses dressed to kill. 
(And some surely came to check out the guys!) 

With Dean Jones' stern but friendly warning to be 
safe firmly in their heads. Saint Mary's was represented 
well and the girls had a night to remember forever.

Fall Formal 29 

Who are you going to call' Ghostbusters? 
Well, yes. The members of the 
Granddaughters Club are called Ghostbusters, 
and Aldert Smedes is their mascot. The club is an old 
one, beginning years ago, whose members are all direct 
descendants of women who attended school here in the 
past. This year's old members are Phebe Hubbard 
(pres.), Nancy Hill (vice pres.), Kan Syrdahl (sec./tres.), 
Karen Edmundson, Sarah Barbee, El Boykm, Frances 
Carstarphen, Nancy Cobb, Anne Gibson Connell, Margaret 
Davis, Sarah Dayvault, Sarah Givens, Elizabeth Hill, Eliza 
Jenkins, Liz Johnson, Alice Manning, Anne Mason, Laura 
Raynor, Cee Sidler, Cooper Thornhill, Carrie Upchurch, 
Sarah Viola, and Katherine Wrenn. Their advisors are 
Margaret Glaze and Ibby Connell. 

The Granddaughters' walk took place right 
before Halloween on October 23, as part of Octoberfest. 
The old girls, dad in their white t-shirts and ghost masks, 
retrieved the new members, all waiting nervously in their 

rooms. After running around the bell tower several 
times, they entered the chapel, sat down, and listened 
to the three officers tell the story of the club. After 
being inducted, the new members' task was to fill little 
bags with candy (which were later put in each campus 

The Granddaughters Club stands solely for 
Saint Mary's tradition and spirit, recognizing each stu- 
dent who has extended her line of family tradition. 
Each year, these Granddaughters set up and host the 
annual Lighting 0' the Grove before Christmas. 

This year's new ghostbusters are Whitley 
Adkins, Winfrey Amis, Hannah Bason, Jill Blanchard, 
Caroline Davis, Alice Eggleston, Charlotte Floyd, Louise 
Harris, Molly Hassinger, Nancy Northcutt, Amanda 
Rinker, Leigh South, Lea Starling, Carolyn Stettimus, 
Ann Urquhart, and Marion Yates. Congratulations, girls!

certainly didn't waste any

Granddaughters Club 3 1 

aps had its annual walk this year on October 9. The night 
was somewhat chilly, but that certainly didn't keep an 
audience away. The girls knew where to go for the walk, 
some because they've seen it before, others because they were notified 
on almost every wall on campus! Everyone met at the stoop in front 
of Cruikshank to see the white pick-up with the old members in back- 
Jennifer Rasmovich (pres.), Amy Palmer (sec./tres.), Keri Beth 
Ratterree (DOT), and Kim Hassell (original member). A few of the 
members from last year made an appearance. But-notice a lack of vice 
president there? That's because Jamie Branch, appointed to the posi- 
tion at the end of last year, has gone on to the University of Michigan. 
Oops! So, at the walk on this night, Maps decided that a new vice 
president was to be chosen among the others. The new members cho- 
sen for this year's group were Christy Hall, (vice president), Becca 

George, Stephanie Phillips, Lindsay Jones, Ashley Barber, and Carolyn | 

Maps is a social club with a secret meaning. The symbol c 
Maps is a little red circle, called the "Dot," which resembles the little 
red dot on 7 Up cans. But this gal wears sunglasses and a black cow- 
boy hat. On the day of the walk, the members wear the same-black 
sunglasses, a black cowboy hat, and cowboy boots. On the day follow 
ing the walk, as part of initiation, the new members must also wear 
this outfit, though their faces are a bit more outrageously done with 
remnants of red marker. Popular words to write with as permanent a 
marker as can be found are "Maps," "1 love Maps," or maybe a few pic 
tures of Dot to embarrass these new inductees, or at least remind then 
of what they are now a part of

aybe it was the sight of Mr. Crews in a tutu 
that made you laugh the hardest. But even if it 
wasn't that particular act that did it for you- 
did any of us imagine that our teachers, professors, Deans, 
and even our President would be up on a stage making us 
fall off our seats laughing for an hour straight' Our most 
respected, distinguished, and scholarly faculty providing 
laughs for us at their own expense? Well any of us who 
saw this year's Faculty Follies assembly in November sure 
can believe it. 

From the minute that Louise and Blanche came 
out as emcees for the event dressed in pajamas pretending 
to be the "typically dressed" Saint Mary's student, we knew 
that there was going to be a lot of poking and making fun 
of people and things that most of the Samt Mary's commu- 
nity is familiar with. For example, everyone could full) 1 
relate to the hilarious impressions Mr Gilliland and Mr 
Lathan did of other faculty members at a staff meeting 
Along with Dr. Esthimer's "German Substitute Teacher", and 
the "student" emcees, we all got a good spirited laugh. 

There was also the unforgettable perfor- 
mances of Saint Mary's very own "Sister Act" nuns. 
Without an) 1 of us knowing, Dr. Bauso Dr Esthimer, Mr. 
George, Mr. Gilliland, Mr. Lathan, Mr. Reed, Ms. 
Thompson, and yes, President Jenkins made up a group 
of singin nuns brilliantly conducted the mother superi- 
or himself, Dr Quinn. As if that was not enough of a 
sight to behold, who can forget the lovely folk singers 
we found out that Ms. Hill, Ms. Peacock, and Chaplin 
Ellington were. Their little trio was as entertaining as it 
was funny 

Many of Saint Mary's most beloved faculty 
contributed to making this event such a success and 
enjoyment. Mr. Edwards and Ms. Stark sang a beautiful 
duet, and Mr. Crews and Ms. Gunn entertained with 
their cross-dressing version of a Russian Ballet. And 
thanks to the organization of Mrs. Pose)', the Faculty 
Follies assembly went perfectly (unless there's some- 
thing we don't know?!?). It was a most enjoyable hour.

came to realize that these 
were not really the alleged 
Russian Dancers. They were 
not only from Saint Mary's, 
but they were Mr. Crews 
and Ms. Gunn. But can you 
tell which is which?

Dr. Esthimer does his best 
impression as a German 
substitute teacher. I don't 
remember what the plunger 
was for, but it was enough 
for me to be glad to have 
Dr. Esthimer! 

A very pretty folly 

Mrs. Stark and Mr. Edwards 
treated the audience to a 
beautiful song, using perfect 
harmony to do so. Maybe 
Mr. Edwards will treat his 
computer classes to a few 
tunes some time.

: he most magical time of the 
year is when the campus is 
awash in candlelight and draped 
with greenery. Townspeople are 
invited to share an evening of 
carols and seasonal readings 
with the college community. A 
campus dignitary "lights" the 
grove when a switch is flipped 
and the giant tree in front of 
Smedes comes to life. 
Luminarias flicker around the cir- 
cle, placed there by members of 
the Grandaughter's Club, who 
also are responsible for the 
night's program. 

Something to Celebrate 

Ho, ho, hoi 

Santa made a special 
appearance at the Lighting, 
and with the help of SGA, 
brought Christmas cheer to 
all our hearts (even 
Scrooge's!). Some of Santa's 
helpers are Holly Evans, 
Tracy Tranguch, Karen 
Edmundson, and Kan 

Wore the night 

After the work was done, and before the 
celebration, all was peaceful at Smedes. 

42 Lighting 0' the Grove 

The crew takes a break 

The Granddaughters Club 
sets up the luminaries every 
year, and this year's girls 
did an especially beautiful 

Golfing, anyone? 

A highlight of placing the 
luminaries was taking over 
and going wild on the golf 
carts! It's been rumored 
that while Kan was driving, 
an unfortunate incident 
occurred involving an elder- 
ly woman and excessive 
amounts of hot chocolate! 

The grove's favorite night 

Merry Christmas! 

After all had left, Smedes 
was again left in peace, and 
anyone who saw this tree 
at this moment will proba- 
bly never forget it.

Fun in the snow is our What a ride! Jennifer 

motto. During the many Rasmovich makes the most 

snow storms, these girls out of a soccer field slope 

knew how to enjoy them- during snow storm, 

Let it Ice, Let it Ice, Let it Ice... 

What are we going to do 
next guys? The soccer fiek 
makes a great ice skating 
rink on an icy day. 

Snow Weekend 46 

Flights were cancelled, airports closed, roads 
blocked, and classes cancelled. One need- 
ed sunglasses merely to walk outside to the 
car because of the incredible glare on the 
ice (not that he/she could drive anywhere 
anyway). Classes at Saint Mary's were supposed to start 
on January 8, upon the return of students and faculty 
from Christmas vacation. But a certain someone who 
likes to nip at people's noses had other plans for us. 

Many who live far enough away couldn't get 
back to school in time because of cancelled flights or 
icy roads. Some school buildings were shut down any- 
way, so classes were postponed until Wednesday the 
10th. Old Jack took a break for a couple of days, until 
Thursday night, when he decided he hadn't had 
enough fun. More ice formed on critical surfaces, 
roads being the most critical at this point. Classes were 
cancelled on Friday, and while some brave girls ven- 

tured their way to a free three day weekend, others took 
advantage of the ice that doesn't come around very 
often. They grabbed beat up laundry baskets, lunch 
trays and lap tops, hitting the soccer field and circle on 
Park Road. If much younger kids weren't in school, 
they were covering every inch of ice in the Triangle. 
That weekend found most Saint Mary's girls in the 
dorms, probably making a record. On Friday of that 
weekend, it took one group 45 minutes just to walk to 
IHOP, which is right across the street 1 

Because it seldom snows in Raleigh, this 
weekend was one to take advantage of and remember 
Think absut it-how often does Mrs. Campbell miss 
class? Though it made it extremely difficult and dan- 
gerous to go anywhere in a car, it was like an adven- 
ture. "Forced" to stay on campus, together with all the 
friends we missed so much during break-Jack Frost had 
his fun, but I think we had the last laugh

The college marshalls are elected by their peers. Dressed in long white gowns, they are present at all official college functions. Their conduct serves as a model for the 
rest of the student body. One of their most stunning appearances is at graduation, when they lead the faculty and student processionals, then are responsible for drop- 

ping the handkerchief and pronouncing the college closed at the end of another year.

The moms began arriving Thursday afternoon. They kept 
coming all day Friday. One could hear shrieks and laugh- 
ter all over campus. Friday night girls and their mothers 
went out to supper, usually in droves that included entire halls 
and then back to the mothers' motel rooms to giggle and share 

On Saturday, following a sumptuous brunch in the dining hall 
during which the Cold Cuts performed, mothers and daughters 
setded down in Pittman Auditorium for a fashion show. The 
models' Saint Mary's girls of course, at their most beautiful. 
Clothes DO make the woman, as a little blush and a litde lipstick 
worn over outfits from Dina Porter, Beanie and Cecil, The Fashion 
Bar in Lumberton, and others shops proved. Amid a backdrop of 
ferns, statues of little girls, and blooming plants, our girls strut- 
ted and preened to classic beach tunes. The theme, fittingly 
enough, was "My Girl." 

And then there was CASINO NIGHT! Everybody on campus 
who was not a mother of a currently enrolled student was 
pressed into service. Everybody on campus who was married to 

someone who was not a mother of a currently enrolled student 
was also pressed into service. The dining hall was transformed 
into a Las Vegas gaming room, with dealers and roulette spinners 
dressed in black and white, complete with arm bands and visors. 
The din was unbelievable as mothers and daughters squealed 
when they won and groaned when they lost. 

On Sunday there was a special mother daughter chapel, followed 
by lunch in the dining hall. Whether the moms came from 
Vermont, Florida, Richmond, or Raleigh, it was a lovely weekend 
that will provide fond and lasting memories.

The 1996 College Tennis Team met the challenge of 
it's most competitive schedule in recent years, com- 
ing away with an 8 win, 4 loss record which includ- 
ed wins over Louisburg, Greensboro College, Mount Olive, 
Spartanburg Methodist, Salem and Peace College. 
Sophomores Holly Evans, Shaner Garner, and Stephanie 
Phillips were joined by freshman newcomers Whitley Adkms, 
Ashley Barber, Ryan Demer, and Jennifer Locke. Adkins led 
the team at the number one singles position, posting as 11-0 
record and was the team's MVP Demer, playing either the 
number 5 or 6 singles position finished match play with a 9- 
1 record. The team qualified as Regional Champion to par- 
ticipate in the national championships of the National Junior 
College Athletic Association at the Division I level. 
Sophomores Evans, who won her last three singles matches 
to round out four years of team tennis at Saint Mary's, 
Garner, last season's MVP, and Phillips, who played on Saint 
Mary's teams for three years, will leave gaping holes in next 
year's line-up.
